Anatoly: "I didn't want him to come
in over there!"

Botvinnik: "Well, you're lucky he
didn't play ba! and Rfb1 and then a4!
as he should have."

  wwall: White could have played 22.Ndxb5! and if 22...cxb5 23.Nxd5 should win for White.

31.h4? is weak. Better choices would be 31.Qc2 or 31.Kg1.

32.h5? loses the knight at g3. Best is 32.Ne2 Qxh4+ 33.Kg1 e4 34.Qc3

Jun-15-08  Helios727: <wwall> That would give white a rook and two pawns against two knights. Would that lead to a forced win?
Jan-28-16  yurikvelo: Weak play both sides

Feb-01-21  MrJafari: Not interesting game as @yurikvelo mentioned...
Feb-01-21  carpovius: When the game was played: Lazarev 28 years old, Karpov - - 10 years old!

Who is talking about weak playand not interesting game, idiots?
